Here's the release from MSU:
EAST LANSING, Mich. — Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has declared Friday, Dec. 2, as “MSU Green Day,” honoring the Michigan State University football team that will play in the inaugural Big Ten champion game Saturday in Indianapolis.
In addition, State Rep. Mark Meadows, an East Lansing Democrat, sponsored a special tribute to the Spartans which was signed by all legislators who represent Ingham County.
In issuing his proclamation, the governor noted the Spartan football team had experienced “tremendous success in recent years, leading the Big Ten Conference in wins over the last two seasons and is now competing for back-to-back conference championships.”
He also noted that the current senior class was now the winningest class in the 115 years of Spartan football.
In addition, all Michiganders are being urged to wear green on Friday in support of the Spartans, who will represent the Big Ten’s Legends Division in the championship game against the Leaders Division champion Wisconsin.
Also on Friday the Sparty statue will be decked out in Spartan green, wearing a football jersey with the number one on the back.
All Michiganders wear green? Good luck with that. It should be noted that Snyder is a U-M grad. Still, cool to see.
